Backbeat Online reviews an appearance by Witchcraft, Dead Child and Kingdom of Magic at the Marquis Theater, listens in to Abracastabya at Black Sheep in Colorado Springs, and finds something positive to say about the Yes album Tormato. There's something terribly wrong about that. Cafe Society posts a eulogy for La Praviana, another dear, departed eatery. The Cat's Pajamas takes a whiff of a very flowery Christina Aguilera. And Demver reveals Tent State University's sleepover plans during the DNC. Don't let the bed bugs bite. -- Michael Roberts
